Can only say good things about this hotel! From the Beach bar to the Albetros resteraunt the food was always good. The service around the pool and in the bar area was always spot on and never had to go to the bar for drinks and ordering more than one was never a problem! Getting downtown was never a problem,...

This hotel is terrible, poor entertainment. The drinks dont have any alcohol in, everything is watered down to the extent that it makes you feel ill drinking it. The food was the worst thing, there was 13 of us on the holiday and every one of us was ill with food poisening for at least 3 days. They cook burgers...

Me and my girlfriend stayed here in the last 2 weeks of July 2007, the hotel was as we had read on here. The pool - nice temperature, decent size and with no deep end (same depth all over) so this can only be good if you are taking kids or if you are not a strong swimmer. Beach only...

We arrived on Friday at 1:00pm. We explained at the front desk that we had 3 other families arriving there that afternoon and that we wanted our 6 rooms nearby.

Barcelo Costa Cancun (BCC) was a very nice place to stay. Rooms were very clean, staff was friendly and the food was good. We only stayed 3 nights, but found almost everything about the hotel to be satisfactory. Check-in was a breeze and we were "on the beach" in under 30 minutes of arrival. Here are the minor disappointments -...

The pool was top notch, drink service great by the pool and beach. Huge, immaculate rooms, fantastic shower, hammock on the porch, they restock your fridge every day with sodas and beer and bottled water! Very high class, especially for the value. Restaurants were good, Mexico Lindo, the Mexican one, was by far the best, though. Spanish one was pretty...
